On those cold, cloudy days where the only thing that sounds appealing is to go snuggle up in a movie theater at The Grove, you will absolutely find us at The Gumbo Pot beforehand. This 35-year-old Cajun spot has delicious food across-the-board (the slightly spicy shrimp and chicken jambalaya is a standout), but at the end of the day, we always go back to our favorite: the Gumbo Ya-Ya. This steaming pot of spicy chicken gumbo with shrimp and andouille sausage is earthy, spicy, and just a little bit sweet. Also, be sure to order some chocolate beignets for later during the movie.
